DINO-A-DAY #86: Edaphosaurus

Welcome to Dino-a-Day, where we'll be highlighting one prehistoric beast per day until the release of our graphic novel Evolution: The Story of Life on Earth on January 4, 2011.

Each of the ninety-six creatures we'll be featuring on this blog are taken from a huge 2-page spread in the middle of Evolution. So while you can see each individual creature here, you'll need to grab the book to see them all together!



NAME: Edaphosaurus
PRONUNCIATION: l-DAF-oh-SORE-us
FAMILY: Edaphosauridae
EXISTED DURING: Carboniferous to early Permian
DISCOVERED: North America, 1878
FUN FACT: Edaphosaurus is acknowledged to be a massive, slow-moving animal, which is frankly not the most flattering way to be remembered.
